I absolutely loved everything about Weddings 826. I purchased and had my dress altered there and everything was easy and turned out so beautifully. The sales reps are not pushy and listen to what you are looking for, and then show you dresses in the budget you described. They also were totally not trying to impose their vision or any body-related opinions on the brides, which is so important. My dress was everything I wanted in the end and I had the best day. I highly recommend making an appointment!
Weddings 826 is THE PLACE to buy your wedding gown! I went to 1 other bridal boutique before going to Weddings 826 and I am so glad I didn't go to more because weddings 826 is where it's at!! Not only are they the most kind and sweet people on the planet but they are so knowledgable about everything weddings and wedding gowns. I bought my dress here, had alterations done (Brian is amazing!), bought accessories (belt & earrings), and I am having it cleaned and preserved here as well now that my wedding is over. They do it all! You start to feel like family when you work with them. Suzi does an amazing job making sure that everything you need is done correctly. Truly you must check out this shop! Thank you Weddings 826!
I took my dress to Weddings 826 for alterations (I had purchased the dress in my hometown in California) after reading good reviews online. I knew I wanted to take it to a place that specialized in wedding dresses and they delivered. Brian was the tailor who worked with me and he was very detail-oriented and made sure the dress looked perfect by my final fitting. Each time I tried it on, he immediately identified the next alterations that needed to be made. Suzie was also amazing. 2 weeks before the wedding, I set up an appointment to look at the veil selection at Weddings 826 as I was having second thoughts about the one I had previously purchased at a different store. Suzie took the time to explain different materials, cuts, lengths, edges, etc. of veils to help me make the best decision and rush ordered my veil so it would be at the store when I picked up my dress. I was so pleased with my experience with Weddings 826. Currently they are cleaning and preserving my dress as well. I would definitely recommend working with them!
As a bridesmaid who has been to many different wedding shops in Chicago, I can confidently say that weddings 826 was the best wedding dress shopping experience we had. It’s a beautiful smaller boutique that has an absolutely enormous selection. Don’t let the small shop fool you - they have a huge warehouse in the back. I was really impressed with the dresses they had off the rack that were discounted. Many of the brides I have been in weddings have a budget of $1000 or less and they were able to readily accommodate that. The shopping experience was so pleasant, they have a beautiful seating area for the brides' guests (like bridesmaids and mother of the bride), and they have a huge personal dressing room where you get your own attendant to help you try on different dresses. I thought the sales staff was very patient, and not pushy. Overall, a really wonderful experience and I would recommend any bride check out weddings 826.
Weddings 826 was by far the best place I went to in Chicago while looking for my wedding dress. It is an intimate shop with so many personal touches. The staff really listens to what you're looking for and they have so many options! Kayla was my stylist and she was excellent. She was kind, patient, receptive, and passionate about her work. I couldn't recommend this place more highly. Thank you for helping me find my dream dress!
